Hello doctor,

My wife is 15 weeks and five days pregnant. Recently, she had an episode of a moderate amount of bleeding per vaginam. We immediately shifted her to the hospital where she was given some conservative treatment, and a USG was done. It was found that the inferior margin of the placenta was covering the internal os. The baby was healthy as per the reports. I am anxious. Kindly advise.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • There is nothing to worry about since everything is fine in the scan. Taking proper rest and hormonal supplements will do.

However, if you have a doubt, then get back to me with the reports so that I can guide you further. Take care.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the response. Just let me know, is it placenta previa? If so, what precaution should we take and how?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, it is previa. But, there is nothing to worry about. It will move up as the pregnancy advances.
  • Precautions are no lifting heavy weights, intercourse or bumpy drives.

Take care.
